    Hello

    Im very interested in doing Marine Architecture. I have plans to go and study Mechanical Engineering at University of Pretoria, South Africa as SA doesn't really have courses specific to the career i want to pursue. I am then going to specialize in fluid dynamics. Is this a good choice? Would this be a decent starting block to get into the career?

    Thanks in advance :)

    I think it is a good choice.

    Fluid dynamics is not naval architecture, just small part of it.
